George Foreman sues Corby Trouser Press over cords setting
Former heavyweight boxer George Foreman is suing makers of the Corby Trouser Press claiming its new ‘Corduroy 2010’ model is just a family size George Foreman Grill, without the bit for heating buns, which nobody ever uses anyway.
An irate Mr Foreman cited precedent for his case after Corby was forced to withdraw a 1982 version of its press targeting shorts-wearers after an appeal by makers of the Breville sandwich toaster, before resorting to traditional trash-talk, to claim the Corby Trouser Press people were ‘no good bums’ and that their product is ‘only ever used by drunk people who come back to their hotel rooms and want to reheat their kebab’.
Hotel staff have also slammed the introduction of the new style corduroy presses. ‘It’s all very well and good and a bit of a novelty the first time you use it,’ said cleaner Mavis Higgins, ‘but seriously, have you ever tried to clean one of those things?’
